Nomination Detail

The Lebanese Civil War may be over but the Syrian one still rages on. In Beirut, Syrian refugees take jobs as construction workers, building skyscrapers while at the same time their own houses back home are being shelled. The Lebanese government has imposed night-time curfews on the refugees and they are not allowed to leave the building site at 7pm. Cut off from their homeland, they gather at night around a small TV set to get the news from Syria. Tormented by anguish and anxiety, while suffering the deprivation of the most basic human and workers right, they keep hoping for a different life.
